In a few short weeks, it’s back to football 24-7. We got the go on another fall PrepXtra Football Preview Issue, so the work is about to start, and boy do I need something to do after the Lakers disaster. Any thoughts on the cover or new feature to add is always welcome, just be realistic, personal bio’s on every player is not happening. We’ve got the Inland Insider Tom Kiss and your Coveritlive correspondent Mike “The Cousin,” ready to go. When all the schedules are available, I’ll post the week by week area schedule, but let’s start here: What’s the biggest Week 0 game, Glendora and the debut of coach Todd Quinsey at Charter Oak or West Covina vs. Covina, which might finally explain if West Covina’s lone loss to the Colts was a fluke or not? Or the Smudge Pot, as someone pointed out. Thanks to the scheduling Gods, we don’t have to choose. Bonita-San Dimas is on Thursday, Glendora-Charter Oak on Friday, and West Covina vs. Covina on a stage by itself on Saturday night at the District. Now how’s that for starting 2011?
From everything I’m hearing, West Covina should be better in 2011. Not Bishop Amat good, but good. Thank goodness Tom Kiss covered last year’s championship, great having video of one of the best finals in SGV history.
